Free Breakfast for Bikers – now on Monday 10th Oct

The weather forecast has even us admitting defeat – the Bike Breakfast is now postponed until Monday 10th October!

Simply bike to campus on Monday 10th October and be rewarded with free breakfast: we’re serving up coffee, a smoothie bike, smiles and baked goods from Bohemian Bakery. All you have to do is ride to uni, and we’ll handle the rest!

Find the Sustainability Office by the Beatrice Tinsley bike stands (between Beatrice Tinsley and Eng Core) from 8am – 10am (or until the food runs out).  Make sure to BYO cup for your drinks.

See you next week!

We’re holding this event as part of Biketober, Ōtautahi’s month long cycling festival. Bikes + October = Biketober!   Biketober is all about giving cycling a go.

Become a UC Host with the Communications and Events team

Are you energetic, enthusiastic and enjoy meeting new people? Are you looking for opportunities to get involved in exciting events? Would you like the chance to develop some new skills?

We organise a range of events that include recruitment events such as Rā Tōmene | Open Day, Rā Tūhura | Discovery Day and Herea tō waka | Orientation Day, visits by VIPs, the opening of new University buildings, community events, as well as public lectures, employers fairs for current students and Graduation. The team is also responsible for managing and leveraging UC’s partnerships.

As a team of five, we rely on the support of UC Hosts to assist us in running and delivering these events and are currently looking for energetic, confident and professional UC students studying in 2023 to join our team as UC Hosts!
